Live Nation, the world's largest live entertainment company, is in the preliminary stages of opening a music venue in Portland.
Bob Dye, the general manager of Lloyd Center, says the venue is tentatively scheduled for an early 2020 opening, "pending the necessary approvals." No further details were disclosed.
Representatives from Live Nation did not respond to requests for comment.
Live Nation owns over 100 clubs and amphitheaters internationally, including the House of Blues chain. Though the venue is listed as "Rose City Music Hall" on the OLCC application, the LLC name is "HOB Entertainment," suggesting it could be branded as a House of Blues.
In June, Lloyd Center revealed extensive renovation plans, including a new 14-screen movie theater and a redesigned exterior for the mall's West Anchor.
